Go Faster Cycling- Improve Your Threshold (FTP) Weeks 1-8 of 16
Hunter Allen for Go Faster Cycling
This 8 week Go Faster Cycling training plan written by Hunter Allen is made for cyclists or triathletes who train with power, heart rate, or perceived exertion. We have provided an eBook on the first day of the plan that contains testing protocol and explains how to set your training zones within TrainingPeaks. That will allow you to know exactly where you are starting with the plan and provide the correct information for testing in the future.
This plan is for the athlete can train from 9 to 13 hours a week, has just started in cycling, and is excited about improving. You can put in between 2-4 hours on one of your weekend days.
The goal of the plan is to increase your threshold and also increase your endurance in the 8 week period.
Before beginning you should be able to complete a 30 mile ride and you would like to be able to complete a 50-60 mile ride in the near future. You are currently riding your bike from 4-7x per week but lack direction and exactly how to best use your training method.
To get the most out of this plan, it's important that you go through the testing information on day one in order to know exactly where your threshold stands.
Best of luck! You can do it!
